We’ve had the Christies Lingerie Spring Summer 08 collection on TLP a couple weeks ago, and today we’ve got their latest swimwear collection too. 🙂
I recently had the challenge of trying to find the Honeydew Lazy Daisy Bralet and Boyshort online. A friend of mine, who is getting married next month, fell in love with this set, but unfortunately, they did not have her size in the color she wanted (white for her wedding!). So, I have spent the past two weeks tracking down this apparently popular set. After trying a number of my favorite sites with no luck (wrong sizes, wrong colors), I stumbled upon Riviera Runway Fashion Online Boutique. And lucky for me, they had exactly what I wanted!
While I was a little apprehensive about trying a new site, the clock is ticking, so I had to jump on it. Navigating the site was easy and the check out process was a breeze. I appreciated the follow up email detailing my purchase. The set was shipped the following day and arrived neatly packaged a few days later.
The site features swimwear brands like L*Space and Luli Fama and lingerie brands including Undrest and Dessous. While the number of brands featured is small, the selection is decent and the purchasing process is easy. I would definitely use this site again.
Wildblue is a young swimwear label designed by Alejandra Castillo, and focusing on high-end costumers looking for luxurious designs and fabrics. The fabrics, quality of the garments, and impeccable attention to detail are what make the pieces so popular. Wildblue has adopted the philosophy that “swimwear is not just something you swim in but it is a venue to display your sense of fashion and for self expression”. We at TLP obviously support that philosophy! 😉
According to the designer — these are not just swimsuits, they are a fashion statement. wildblues collections greatly utilize animal prints, and metallics as a foundation. Alejandra enjoys utilizing animal print and metallics as she believes these prints speak to a womans inner being and reflect their inner strength and instinctual fierceness.
Wildblue swimwear recognizes that while the look of a bathing suit is important, fit is even more important. Alejandra Castillo strives to balance fit and design in all of her designs.
The 2008 Collection features one-pieces, bikinis and (the ever so popular) monokini. Accesories range from coconut shell details to rhinestones making the 2008 collection an entire venue of fashion and self expression at the beach.
Wildblue swimwear is available in high end boutiques all over the US, USVI & Asia. Get Wildblue Swimwear online at www.wildblueswimwear.com.
This runway show dates back a couple months but we’ve only gotten the high resolution images today.
According to Beachwear.cc “This is a limited edition collection of bikinis, as well as cocktail dresses, created by the design team of Alessandra and Francesca Piancentini for the Fashion For Relief Association, which is a charitable organization that Naomi Campbell founded in 2005. The Organizations benefits this year will be given to flood victims in the UK.”
Here’s yet another label never before seen on The Lingerie Post — European swimwear designer Claudie Song, just added to the Nancy Meyer stocklist.
“Inspired by the art, colours and history of the Iberian Peninsula, the Claudie Song swimwear collection provides a breath of fresh air by integrating bright colors with unique, whimsical prints. Semiprecious stone detailing adds elements of luxury and fun — with a European flair”
Each of these pieces has a gem — and ideally transforms into a cocktail dress according to the Claudie Song website. I like the idea of couture swimwear — and I like the not-so-average feel of the collection.
